Does anybody have experience with this company? Is it reputable? I don't want my CV spread out all over different networks...
Selby Jennings Headhunters Complaints
Generally speaking, our users had negative things to say about this headhunting firm. A sample of their thoughts are shared below.
They seem to only care about measuring your comp, so they have a database to sell to companies. Avoid them.
Several users shared the sentiment that they spam the job boards and widely distribute your resume.
Yeah, they spam job boards as well as your cv, give you no answers etc, Do not contact them.
I got calls from them before and they have no idea what the hell the meaning of bulge bracket is. Every time they called me they said they have this top BB bank looking to fill a spot. I get interested and it turns out the banks are no names I have never even heard of from countries like Japan and one was a community bank from Canada or something. They are salesmen and they try to sell you on jobs.
These guys are spam artists. Most of their "searches" are efforts to find potential clients. Typically they send you an email asking whether you'd be interested in a particular role. If/when you respond to that email, they set up a phone appointment. During the call, they will ask where you've been interviewing. At this point, you have two options: 1) make up some random funds/banks, or 2) refuse to disclose the info. Either way, they'll say that the original role has been filled, but they'd be happy to help you in your search...and that will be the last you hear from them.
